PHOTO: “Surprise!” – Brazil Nightclub in South Pattaya
Five police officers in Pattaya City have been unceremoniously transferred after two early morning raids on entertainment venues in their area. The pubs had been operating beyond legal hours, tolerated illicit drug use and allowed underage patrons on their premises.
Here’s the Pattaya police walk of shame…
Muang Pattaya Police Station superintendent Colonel Prawit Chorseng, two superintendents Pol Lt-Colonel Korm Somkanay and Lt-Colonel Manoj Wangsooseuk and two inspectors Pol Lt-Colonel Saranyapong Maithongkullathorn and Pol Major Palakorn Trachunit.
The National Police deputy spokesman Pol Colonel Krissana Pattanacharoen says.“They are now assigned to work at the Chon Buri Police headquarters for 30 days.”
He added that the five police officers would also face a full investigation.
Provincial Administration officials, with support from the military and relevant authorities, conducted raids at Brazil Pattaya and 90 Bar around 4am yesterday in response to complaints that they operated beyond legal hours.
Officials found more than 300 customers inside Brazil Pattaya along with a gun, knife, ecstasy pills, ketamine and crystal meth the venue. Nearly half the customers tested positive for drugs. Also found at the scene were 4 underage customers. At the 90 Bar 14 customers tested positive for drugs.
The managers of both these entertainment venues now face several charges.
